Updated factory images for Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, 7, 7 (2013) and 10 now available

Google Developers
It’s updates galore for the current line of Nexus devices. In the last couple of days we’ve seen OTA updates begin flowing for the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4 and http://ausdroid.net/2013/08/22/rumour-security-update-jwr66y-heading-for-the-nexus-10/. Now, overnight another update has begun pushing out to the Nexus 7 (2013) so to keep everyone happy and up to date, Google has released factory images for the entire range of current Nexus devices.

The Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7(WiFi and HSPA) and Nexus 10 factory images have all been updated, moving from Build JWR66V to JWR66Y. The Nexus 7 (2013) build has updated from JSS15J to JSS15Q to address previously reported issues with Multi-Touch and GPS Locking.

There should be OTA updates being captured soon, and we hope to bring you those, but until then if you’re absolutely desperate you can flash the factory images.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I updated my Nexus 7 2013 from from JSS15J to JSS15Q using factory image. I was waiting for OTA uodate but then used instructions on XDA Dev and did it myself for the first time. No Issues…Happy to have latest and greatest. Wish google adds some official instructions.

Is this why the 4.3 update notification (which I’ve been ignoring) on my Nexus 4 has disappeared?

I’m still on 4.2.2 and there is no update available… I was about to upgrade 🙁

I’ll try again tomorrow.

Damn I love having a Nexus phone. Updated to JWR66Y this morning, and updated recently are Google Keep, Google+, Google Translate, Google Search, YouTube, Maps, Hangouts and Chrome Browser.

Speaking of the Google Search update, type or speak a word, let’s use “ennui” as the example, and Search will tell you that it is a noun, Search can speak the word for you, give you many synonyms, displays the Origins of the word, and gives a graphic of “Use over time”.

Impressive stuff.
